Entire LAN goes boo with 2.5.64

Trying out the 2.5.64 kernel to try to solve some IDE specific
problems with 2.4.x kernels. Now I have another problem. We have a
Windows LAN and a Windows XP with WinRoute Pro as gateway.

When booting the linux-machine with the 2.5.64 kernel the windows
machine goes to 100% cpu and the switch (Dlink) goes crazy (loosing
link, other machines get 100k/s instead of 10-12MiB/s etc).

I compiled the 2.5.64 with as few options as possible, no
netfilter, or IPSec or similar stuff.

What can be the problem?
